Error description

  • While the LIKE keywords are resolved properly for subfields of
    external data structures, if a subfield or standalone field is
    defined LIKE a field defined in an external record format, it
    will appear as type Unknown(0) in the outline view.  This will
    also affect hover functionality.
    

Local fix

  • Switch to using the old static outline view by unchecking the
    'Update the Outline view when text is changed in the editor'
    preference under Remote Systems-> Remote Systems LPEX Editor->
    IBM i Parsers-> ILE RPG.

    a field defined in an external record format will show the
    data type incorrectly as 'Unknown(0)' in the outline view.
